Josh HuestisST. LOUIS, MO – Stanford withstood a late barrage from Kansas’ Conner Frankamp to hold on to a 60-57 victory, sending the Cardinal into the Sweet 16. Despite going 0-9 from behind the arc, Stanford won with a strong defensive performance that held the Jayhawks to 32 percent shooting from the field. Four of Stanford’s starting five scored in the double-digits, led by Dwight Powell with 15.

The Jayhawks were paced by Tarik Black who chipped in 18, but otherwise found scoring hard to come by, with the freshman Frankamp the second highest on the team with 12 points.
